Mike Bohn has now hired Big 12 Executive Associate Commissioner Ed Stewart for a "high-ranking role in the athletic department at USC" according to ESPN's Pete Thamel. He will be an Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director who will oversee the football program, according to Thamel.

This feels like a similar hire to Bohn's hire over a month ago with new General Manager/Senior Associate Athletic Director for Football, Dave Emerick.

Both are to fill the void left by Brandon Sosna, who took a position in the NFL with the Detroit Lions after serving as USC's previous Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director and Chief of Staff. Stewart was with the Big 12 for 16 years and was their lead football administrator.

USC football made a great decision with the Ed Stewart hire.

Famous CBS Sports national college football writer Dennis Dodd applauded USC football for hiring Ed Stewart. Check out what he had to say in his Tweet below:

Bohn couldn't have done much better than hiring "one of the most respected administrative football minds in the game." The long-term gains from this will be massive.

While there's only about a month for Stewart to try to make big improvements for USC before this upcoming season begins, he will certainly always have the opportunity to improve the program as a whole for the future.

Perhaps he could help make moves that would lead to USC improving in the recruiting department right away. There are still over four months until the first signing day takes place. Bottom line is; USC has finally been making the right administrative decisions surrounding the program in these past eight-plus months.

They've hired an even better head coach than most thought they could even hire, they've ditched the Pac-12 for a conference they deserve, and they've replaced the man who hired Lincoln Riley perfectly.

Also, even before these last eight-plus months, Bohn had been making many good decisions within the program, it was just the most important ones (Clay Helton, Todd Orlando) where he made some mistakes.

They stole the headlines, but it was objectively true that he at least was making other good decisions within SC's support staff. Ever since Helton and Orlando have been gone though, it's been ALL wins for this program and administration.
